The Lugansk People’s Republic inter-ministerial working group on the search for burial sites of Ukrainian aggression victims expects to find up to fifteen hundred mass burial sites in the Severodontsk agglomeration.
"In total, Severodonetsk, Lisichansk, Rubezhnoye, Popsnaya - we expect 1,500 mass burials there," Anna Soroka, the leader of the working group said.
First bodies of victims of Ukrainian aggression were exhumed in Sabovka, Slavyanoserbsk district, on August 11, 2021.
Ukraine has been carrying out a military crackdown against Donbass since 2014. Multiple announcements of ceasefires failed to stabilize the situation. The simmering armed conflict escalated rapidly in February this year, and sent Donbass barrelling towards an unprecedented bloodshed.
Russia intervened on February 24 by launching a special military operation to demilitarize Ukraine and bring peace back to Donbass. *t
